E3 has been selected by the Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL), a leading electricity distribution company in India, to develop a distributed energy resource (DER) plan for its service territory in north Delhi.
The project is being supported by a grant to TPDDL from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The project will consider solar, demand response, storage and other DER and will enable TPDDL to prioritize and deploy resources that will improve the reliability of its electricity network, reduce emissions, and lower overall power costs for its more than six million customers. Mr. Snuller Price, Dr. Priya Sreedharan and Ms. Amy Guy Wagner from E3 will work closely with Mr. Praveer Sinha, CEO and Mr. Arunabha Basu, Chief of Technology and Systems of TPDDL.
Special emphasis will be given to assessing the financial and technical viability of power generation from renewable energy resources, the integration of demand response technologies on TDPPL’s network, and the development of specifications for a pilot project. This study responds directly to TDPPL’s goal of generating cleaner, more reliable electricity, while also positioning U.S. firms to provide technology solutions. This project supports bilateral U.S.-India government priorities, including increasing domestic energy production and implementing smart grid solutions, as identified during the ongoing U.S.-India Energy and Strategic Dialogues.
